The source of the American Agency AP added that an immediate announcement to Jerusalem from tel Aviv, the U.S. Embassy is not expected — but it is possible that this will be announced later.

Later TASS, quoting the White house spokesman, said that the President's speech will announce its request to the state Department to begin the process of planning the transfer of the U.S. Embassy from tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The representative of the administration said that "the President will not set deadlines of transfer of the Embassy is a matter of years, not months", as it employs thousands of people.

Representatives of the Washington administration said that the US even know of a suitable building in Jerusalem on a diplomatic mission.

In addition, the White house stressed that the trump instructed the foreign Ministry to postpone the mission "given the minimal burden that should fall on the shoulders of American taxpayers".

Earlier, the EU high representative for foreign policy Federica Mogherini urged the United States to avoid everything that can prevent a peaceful settlement and the concept of creating two States for Israelis and Palestinians.

However, as stated in the White house, despite the difficult status of Jerusalem, trump believes that "now is the time" to do the "right thing" that will not hinder the achievement of peace.

The intention to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel trump announced during the election campaign before the presidential election in 2016. At the international level, Jerusalem is not recognized as the Israeli capital, as the city's status should be determined in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, who want to declare the Eastern part of Jerusalem occupied by Israel in 1967, the capital of a future independent Palestinian state.

The law on the transfer of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem was adopted in 1995 but to do it had until may 31, 1999. However, the law for the President reserved the right of veto, which every six months was imposed by bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, trying to avoid steps that could further aggravate the situation in the middle East.
